I recently went here with my husband on a recommendation from a friend who used to frequently have dinner at the bar. I was blown away. It was extremely busy on a Saturday night, but we made reservations so there was a nice table for two waiting. The atmosphere was relaxed despite the number of people there. The Good Luck... More

We at dinner here the night before Valentine's Day and really enjoyed it. We are not over the top fancy people, but like really good meals in a 'nicer' environment and Good Luck fit the bill. The food was great, service was excellent and we truly enjoyed it! Would definitely go back.

Went with 10 people. Got a great table in the middle of the room on a Saturday- 8:30. Was not sure the time would like-but it really worked. Still hoping and a great crowd. The food!! wow!! Everyone tried something different. My sausage platter was awesome- husbands fried chicken was great- sweet but in a good way. But my brothers... More

Even though i dont like big and loud places (which Good Luck definitely is), I dont regret going there. It just has some special kind of atmosphere. Service was great. The place was pretty much packed, yet we didnt have to wait long for anything we ordered. And I the food was outstanding. Yes the portions arent really that big,... More

Six of us had dinner at Good Luck and we had a wonderful meal. The cocktails were creative and well made. The salad was good; the greens were a bit wilted and tired looking. Our table shared the fried chicken (super moist, even the breast meat), gnocchi, hamburger, and pasta shaped like calamari (but was a vegetarian dish). Loved the... More

We have friends who go to Good Luck on a regular basis, so the 4 of us got together so they could share their Good Luck with us. It was extremely crowded, most of them being 20 something hipsters. A very trendy place. The 4 of us range from 40's to 60, but we never felt out of place. The... More

This is one of those trendy small plate restaurants down by the Village Gate complex. We went with friends from out of town who had heard about the place while on business. There were 6 of us...4 adults and 2 teenage boys. We ordered plate after plate of pricey food to share, and never got full. The only decent value... More

Yumma! We have been here 3 times in the last 2 months. Their days open are limited (Wed-Sat) but it's because they fill their tables every night. A lot of the younger crowd seems to just come in and hang out at the bar and eat there. The portions are big because they are made for sharing. The giant hamburger... More

After receiving a glowing recommendation from our son, my husband and I tried Good Luck. We had difficulty finding it - the sign on the front is about 8" x 10" but once we located it, we were greeted by a friendly young lady. We were seated with one chair against the outer wall - which had a freezing cold... More
